Fours for Nachman

[user80015] • Level 30: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Andre Akkari opened his button to 250,000 and Nachman Berlin made the call to see a {Q-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{K-Hearts} flop fall.

Berlin checked and Akkari followed suit to see the {9-Diamonds} land on the turn with both players checking before the {2-Hearts} completed the board on the river.

Both players checked once again, and when Berlin tabled his {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}, he was pushed the pot.
